We depart at 4:30pm and return at 6:30pm. These times are subject to change (especially through winter- maybe half an hour earlier due to it becoming dark earlier).Complimentary sparkling wine & non alcoholic drinks on arrival.....and delicious antipasto platters while watching the sunset.Environmental tax included. BYO is welcome and we have plenty of cold water available. We sail in Horseshoe Bay but also venture off shore and to other bays if the weather and sea conditions allow us. We believe in ensuring our guests have a memorable and enjoyable experience.Our location of departure/drop off in Horseshoe Bay is easily accessible, either by the local bus service as it is very reliable and we also have a taxi company if you did not bring a car to the island.Overall, our Sunset Sail is a lovely way to spend 2 hours sailing on the water with a small groups of guests- 12 MAX.

We (M28, F29) had a great time out on the water with Lisa, Stu, Coco the dog and the other travellers. By sheer luck, we also managed to see some whales and dolphins, which really topped it off. Highly recommend.
